Food, noise and scent policy

Each campus library serves as a shared and common resource. We seek to create and maintain a comfortable and productive learning environment for everyone. Out of consideration for others, please respect your library Noise and food policy.

Food and drinks

Drinks in covered containers are permitted in most of our libraries. Cold snacks are permitted in some of our libraries. Please help us keep the library clean by depositing waste in garbage cans and recycling bins.


Feedback has indicated a need for quiet places as well as for space for group learning and collaboration. Each campus library is divided into distinct zones: common, quiet, silent; and has signage indicating designated areas.

When you are in the library, please turn off the ringer on our cell phones, and use audiovisual devices with headphones.


Help us keep the air we share healthy and fragrance-free. The chemicals used in scented products can make some people sick, especially those with fragrance sensitivities, asthma, allergies and other medical conditions. Please do not wear perfume, cologne, aftershave and other fragrance. Use unscented personal care products.
